Socious is hosting a webinar for businesses, nonprofit associations, and user groups to help them navigate the process of switching online community platforms. This free webinar features a case study from an association that recently switched private online member community software.

Webinar: Changing Online Community Software
There are inherent risks in changing your customer or member engagement platform.

Socious’s latest educational webinar titled, How to Switch Your Online Community Software Without Losing Your Mind or Your Job, will be held Thursday, April 3, 2014 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. EDT (US). The free event will feature real advice from an organization that recently transitioned from one social community platform to another.

The online event will be led by Socious’s SVP and co-founder, Paul Schneider, who has been involved in over one hundred online customer and member community implementations. Joining him on the webinar will be Catherine Davidge of the Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP).

Each year, companies of all types and sizes change their online community software platform for a variety of reasons. Common reasons for switching include their strategies evolve, their community grows, or their online community software vendor goes through changes that impact their results.

“Every month, I speak with dozens of companies and associations that want to change or upgrade their online community software. However, they don’t want to lose any of the activity and engagement they have worked hard to generate,” said Paul Schneider of Socious. “During this webinar, we’ll provide participants with a clear path by laying out information they need to gather and the steps they need to take.”

Regardless of the reason for the change, anyone who has implemented, launched, and grown a private online community knows that the thought of transitioning from one community platform to another keeps many marketing, membership, and social business executives up at night.

“There are inherent risks in changing your customer or member engagement platform. By following the process that Socious developed for AMP’s staff, the organization was able to successfully convert their historical social data, re-launch their community, and increase member engagement,” continued Schneider.

Socious’s new webinar will explain how businesses and membership organizations you can change online community platforms without frustrating customers or members and losing credibility with senior management.
